What is Gnosticism? It’s more than just a big word, and you’ve probably run across it more than you realize.
Rev. Peter Burfeind joins host Rev. Sean Smith to discuss Gnosticism in America today. Learn the historical roots and key ideas of Gnosticism and the influence of Gnosticism on historic Christianity. Then, hear how the gnostic heresy is still active in Christianity today, the dangers of hidden Gnosticism to our concord as the Church, and how we combat Gnosticism in order to maintain concord in the Church.
Rev. Peter Burfeind is Pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Union City, Michigan and Agnus Dei Lutheran Church in Marshall, Michigan, and serves as a Reserve Chaplain in the United States Army. He is author of the book Gnostic America: A Reading of Contemporary American Culture and Religion according to Christianity’s Oldest Heresy (Amazon.com), and a series of 3 books called A Year Crowned in Goodness: Daily Meditations on the Gospels of the Historic Lectionary (Amazon.com: Part One, Part Two, Part Three) that challenge gnostic ideas.
This is a rebroadcast from December 18, 2021.
